“The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” John 3:8

Today Jesus wants you to come into rest.  Maybe you are trying to maintain your Christian life and ministry by struggling in your own strength.  Today Jesus says to you: “The wind blows”.  If you believe in Jesus with your heart and have confessed Him as your Lord, then the Spirit of God dwells in you.  And the Holy Spirit is at work.  He wants the life and character of Christ to come out through your life.  The Holy Spirit also gives power to be a witness for Jesus.  Trust that, as surely as the wind blows, as surely the Spirit of God is at work in your life.

“For God is the One working in you, both to will and to do His good pleasure.” Philip. 2:13

 God puts His will and ability to fulfill it, into your life.  But we need to trust that God is active in our lives so that we do not try to start a lot of activities on our own.  We are only to flow with the Holy Spirit.  Then we will see that Jesus’ yoke is easy and His burden is light.

 I do not know what God is leading you to do, but I know He is leading you.  God always leads you according to the Bible and there are different times and moments in life.  Just as the wind sometimes blows strongly and north, so we know that sometimes it is a different strength and direction.  Your task is not to make the wind blow or try to change it, but simply let it blow in your sails.

 God bless you.
